Johnson; one of the four numbers recorded, The Call of the Blues, became his most memorable achievement; in September 1951 the De Paris brothers opened at Ryan's for what would prove to be the longest-lasting run of any jazz band on Fifty-second Street; died 13 September 1967 in New York, New York, United States)
